Would you shave your head for a child?
Participants in a St. Baldrick’s event shave their heads in exchange for donations towards finding cures for childhood cancers and giving survivors long and healthy lives.
It’s a simple concept, a fun time and a very effective fundraiser. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation funds more childhood cancer research grants than any other organization except the U.S. government & has raised over $130 million since 2000.
TeamBrent is going Old School!!!!! It is our 8th annual event, and we want to revisit our roots and celebrate the bravery of those going under the clippers. We are keeping it simple – a stage, head shaving, head painting, bone marrow drive, the world’s greatest bake sale, music and great photos. It is going to be loads of fun. Sunday April 1st @ Tomlinson Middle School in Fairfield. Register now @ http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/62/2012
We will be kicking off the celebration the night before with our long time partners, the Sound Tigers. Join us March 31 for St. Baldrick’s night at the Sound Tigers game (Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard). Tickets are $19 each if ordered by Friday March 16th & 21% of each discounted ticket will support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. We will not be shaving heads at the game. Join us Sat. night Mar 31 to watch the game, then come Sunday and go bald!

Thank you also to the many groups that continue to branch out and start events – the money goes to the same place and the message gets stronger and stronger as the # of events increases.

We all rest in the shade of trees that we did not plant.
